Nikhedonia

 
I love discovering new words.
My latest favourite is nikhedonia : The pleasure of anticipating victory or success. Etymologically from Nike, the Greek goddess of victory; plus hedone, pleasure.
This is how I am feeling today as I prepare to spend the day gardening and transform the overgrown lawns, weeds and moss into something lovely to look at.
 
I wore:
Shoes - Clarks
Jeans - Tesco
Top - Boden

  1. I like new words too. I'll have to think of a way to work that one into a conversation. The curved hem on your top takes it out of the ordinary. I was getting kind of tired of striped tops but would buy this one.

  2. It's a lovely look! I particularly love the pattern mix of stripes and animal print.
